Description
About the Book

Goddess Durga was created out of the combined power of all gods to destroy the evil demon Mahishasura who had overthrown the gods from their heavenly abode. This book details the several demons who posed a threat to the very existence of the race of the gods and man and how each one met a dastardly end at the hands of this supreme divine mother!

About the Author

Gauri Kelkar is a freelance writer and editor whose area of interest now extends into the vast and varied mythological world of gods and goddesses. A first timer in the world of children’s writing where imagination rules, the journey from writing content for adults to writing tales for children has been fraught with literary challenge-one that she has enjoyed thoroughly!

There’s hardly a genre of illustration that Tapas Guha hasn’t enjoyed doing. But if asked to choose his favourite, comics and graphic novels it shall be. He lets the mood and ambience of the text inspire his illustration, which explains the use of varied mediums in his body of work. When not creating artwork, Tapas can be seen either enjoying a hot cuppa cappuccino at a coffee pub or tea at some adda with friends.

Preface

oddess Durga, the Divine Mother, is the supreme protector of the universe from all evil thought and deed. Durga, in -it means ‘invincible’. She is also referred to as Devi or Shakti.

Goddess Durga is the supreme energy who emerged out of the active strength of all gods. This warrior-goddess was invoked protect the race of gods and man from the destructive and evil s of the powerful demon, Mahishasura. Since then, whenever any evil force tried to conquer the Earth, Goddess Durga appeared save her beloved devotees.

Goddess Durga is typically depicted with ten arms—each an represents the ten geographical directions, including the three-dimensional space above and below—the Heaven and the Netherworld. She rides a fierce lion. Unlike other goddesses, Durga is not attached to anyone. The Divine Mother’s nine avatars are worshipped on the occasion of Navaratri.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
